There are two bolts to loosen, one at the top of the alternator and a smaller one underneath on a bracket. Loosen these and push the whole unit down this will loosen the belt so it can be replaced then use a lever to pull up the unit while tightening the bolts

Loosen the bolts on the alternator or P/S pump, whichever applies, and slide it back enough to loosen the belt. Look and you will see that it can be moved in order to loosen or tighten the belt. Deflection at center point of the belt is approximately 1/2 inch.Loosen the bolts on the alternator or P/S pump, whichever applies, and slide it back enough to loosen the belt.

If it's the alternator belt, loosen the bolts holding the alternator in place, then use something like a hammer handle to pry the alternator away from the engine which will tighten the belt. Hold the pressure on the alternator while tightening the bolts. This is a general procedure, not specific to 1996 dodge.

Disconnect the 1982 Regal alternator. Loosen the alternator bolts and slide to release belt tension. Put new belt on ( you may have to remove other belts to gain access) and pull the alternator sideways to put medium tension on the belt while tightening the bolts. Reconnect the battery.

What kind of car? On an older car you just loosen the alternator and pull it until the belt is tight and then tighten the bolts back. On newer cars, there is a tensioner that pulls the slack out of the belt.

Suggest replacing all the belts also. 1st belt, remove coolant res. loosen the pulley next to the res. then there is a tension bolt behind it. get under the car, the alternator is right there on the passenger side. possible under a small shield. loosen all the bolts on the alternator, then there is a tentioner on the alternator. loosen that, remove belt, then take out the rest of the bolts, along with the plug and the ground wire to the alternator. for the P/S belt, loosen the other pulley 14mm, and then the tention bolt is another 12mm.

On the four cylinder engine, all accessories are run with two belts, one for the power steering pump, the other drives the alternator and a/c compressor, etc. Loosen the bolts holding the power steering pump first. Please note the bolts that mount it are on the driver side of the engine, while the bolts that tension it, face the front of the car. Loosen (no need to remove) the tension bolt, remove the power steering belt. Loosen the bolts on the alternator, loosen the tension bolt on the alternator, push the alternator toward the engine and the belt is now free.

first you need to jack up your car and put it on jack stands, then remove the passenger side wheel, then loosen the two bolts on the back of the power steering pump and the pivot bolt so you can remove the accessory drive belt. Then you can loosen the two bolts on the front of the alternator, then if you look at the alternator through the wheel well on the left side of the alternator there is a bracket, on the backside of the bracket there is an adjuster bolt loosen it and then you can remove the alternator belt.

Loosen the alternator and push the alternator down and pull the belt off, put new belt over crank and water pump pulleys and around alternator pulley and pull up on the alternator to where the belt is tight and tighten the alternator bolts down.

User Avatar

Loosen all the bolts on the alternator and push down on the alternator and the belt will be loose and you can take it off, to reinstall you put new belt around the water pump and crank pulleys and then put it over the alternator pulley and pull up on the alternator and tighten the bolts back up and you should have a 1/2 " play in the belt when you push down on it, if you have more than that you need to unloosen alternator bolts again and pry the alternator up with a large screwdriver and re-tighten the bolts again and recheck.
